Donate on Line Now

The Friends of Madera Canyon prides itself in getting the greatest possible conservation impact from your donation, so you can be confident that your gift will help protect Madera Canyon for generations to come.  We rely on an alliance of donors like you who believe in the core value of conservation through education in Madera Canyon.

Unrestricted Gifts: These tax deductible contributions help us meet our annual operating expenses.   When you allow us to use your gift where it is needed most, you give us the flexibility to prioritize your gift based on the board's needs.

Restricted Gifts: These tax deductible contributions are restricted to specific Friends’ projects -- for example the adult/youth education programs (Education Fund) and the annual scholarship we provide to graduating high school seniors (Scholarship Fund).

Gifts of Securities: Donating stock or mutual funds can be arranged to support the Friends’ efforts. Either you or your banker/stock broker simply informs us of your intentions to transfer the stock to the Friends’ account.  It's that simple. 

Matching Gifts:  Matching gifts are initiated by donors whose company offers such a program. If your employer does not have a matching gift program, an inquiry from an employee sometimes helps motivate management to set one up.  Matching gifts from your employer are a good source of steady, predictable income for the Friends.
